British diesel outboard innovator Cox Powertrain has announced that its CXO300 has been chosen as a winner in Boating Industry’s 2021 Top Products program.
Now in its eighth year, the annual Boating Industry Top Products program receives over 250 submissions every year from various businesses and organisations showcasing their new and innovative products.
Any product that has been introduced or significantly updated since January 2020 was eligible to receive the award. Since going into production in May 2020, the CXO300 diesel outboard proved to be a front runner.
Built for purpose for both recreational and commercial users, the CXO300 is one of the few high-powered diesel outboards available to the market. Offering high torque at low RPM, 25% better fuel efficiency than a gasoline-equivalent, and with EPA Tier 3, RCD II, and IMO II certifications of approval, the CXO300 proves to not only be innovative in design but also provides a clean-burning diesel outboard option to the marine market.
To echo the CXO300’s innovation, Cox Powertrain launched its exclusive customer engine management mobile application earlier this year – the Coxswain. The user-friendly app was developed as part of Cox’s goal to raise the benchmark for customer service within the marine industry. The Coxswain app allows customers to book service, request technical assistance, manage their warranty, and access vital owners’ documentation – all in the palm of their hand, making it an invaluable tool for swift aftersales support.
Almost a year after production began, the 300hp diesel outboard engine is now available in over 20 territories globally, with customers ranging from recreational, commercial, and governmental users. With a strong order book for the remainder of 2021 and 2022, the demand for this outboard is only set to increase and will continue to disrupt the marine market.
